About The Wine

Jean-Paul Thevenet is one of the original - and now legendary - 'Gang of Four', alongside other Beaujolais luminaries: Guy Breton, Jean Foillard and Marcel Lapierre.

A winemaker with a deep respect for tradition, Thevenet farms his old vines with an organic approach, expressing the nuance of his little patch of dirt with as little intervention as possible. Perhaps the most 'old school' of the four, Jean-Paul's wines are pure, expressive and have a rare life to them.

Now, his son Charly has joined him in the cellar since 2008 and the family tradition continues. 

Speaking of tradition - this wine showcases the purity, levity, and gravitas of great Cru Beaujolais that will be the tradition of the best producers of the region for many years to come. This is Morgon in full flight - both vividly vibrant and earthily structured. It's a beautiful expression that will continue to evolve for many years to come.

The Wine Front

"A wonderful producer, and a fine way to ease myself back into tasting for the year 2021. I’m a firm believer in being very kind to myself, and perhaps, others. Juicy and spicy strawberry and raspberry, a slight earthiness, also floral perfume. Cool and fine, gentle sweep of emery tannin, fresh, some dried herb in the mix, and don’t mind me, but an almost Chambolle-like quality here, finishing dry, ‘mineral’ and long. Top shelf. Yes." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: 3 Fig St, Ultimo, 2007/ Please make sure you have placed your order before arriving at the warehouse

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
